happy earth day caterpillars

oh yes. perhaps the most well loved children's book has come to life for me again, for the first time in twenty years, with this amazing find. i think i saw it on Second Life 24Hr blog first along with the lucky board prizes and some other cheapies/freebs but THIS, this dress is simply the best. how can i quantify or explain how precious children's literature is itself, let alone this particular story of anthropromorphic coming of age. the child in the chrysalis, growing from hungry chomping on plants into a beautiful glorious butterfly at the end of the journey. this outfit is so cute, it almost makes me want to cry. cry like a baby, and then curl up and read goodnight, moon again as well. the scarf is the very hungry caterpillar himself, you get a caterpillar for your shoulder, the dress is babydoll adorable, and the boots and ear muffs have the caterpillar with little insect legs attached just for added detail. would you believe me if i told you this whole set was only 10 lindens? go get it. dress up in it. style it. then log off, and read to your kid, please!
